Many Colored Rocks

This my SECOND post today, as we had all kinds of internet issues in Dubois.Don’t miss the Teton post as the photos are great!

We stayed last night in Dubois, Wyoming, a town that still sees itself as a cowboy town, complete with Wild West style buildings, wood plank sidewalks, and a guy who plays Ragtime Piano outside the general store. It seems that The Sundance Kid actually owned a ranch here, before he decided to become an outlaw, and we know how that worked out, ending abruptly in Bolivia!

The ride to Riverton went through many different types of rock formation and terrain, from Striated Rocks to Red Rocks, back to Striated, then to Ranch land, Great ride, another beautiful day. We have started our slow descent from the Rockies,we started today’s ride at about 6,900 feet above sea level, and ended at about 5,000 feet, so it’s the payback for the climbing the last few days, making the 79 miles seem really easy by comparison. Wishing you all a pleasant and safe July Fourth. We will be spending it as a REST DAY in Caspar, Wyoming. Not sure what to expect, but I am sure it will be different than being in New Jersey.
